AP: Republican UNC Trustees.... yeah, so?

May 12,’14:  The Repubs have had control over The UNC System for 4-5 years now.  Two “classes” of Brd of Governors and assorted campuses’ Brds of Trustees have been appointed under the reputed “iron fist” of The General Assembly and one year’s worth of Governor McCrory.

The Repubs “being in charge” of The UNC System was supposed to “shake up that spiders’ nest of Liberal nutjobs.....”.    Can anyone report any evidence of said “shake ups” yet?   Begs the question..... how screwed up might The UNC system be today WITHOUT Repubs in charge of their boards?

AP: A Witch Burning In Greenville ??

May 7,’14:  It has become a familiar scenario.  A self-righteous UNC System faculty squirrel enforces his version of “spiritual martial law” over his hapless students.   “Thou shalt NOT mention God.....”  Holy Bart Ehrman, Batman!   Just another sad chapter in the ongoing UNC System “Inquisition”?   This one on the ECU campus in Greenville.  Right? ..... Maybe, Maybe NOT.   

When I first read this story on May 5, something didn’t ring true.   It was a collection of details that did not quite fit.  Has there been a Rush To Judgment regardling Asst Professor Eli Hvastkovs. ...... Is a Witch to be burned in Greenville?

AP: The Great American Witch Hunt has begun.

May 1,’14:  You don’t like anything about Donald Sterling, do you?   Every picture we’ve seen of him..... every word we’ve read about him this week... YUCK!  PTUI!   The Donald Sterling Total Package is as repulsive as it can be.  The Harry Reid Total Package may be its only comparable.  Today’s commentary is no defense of the indefensible Donald Sterling.

Today’s commentary is about the new Sport that debuted this week and is poised to sweep across America.  You may recall it from Salem, Mass back in 1692.   A more recent version rampaged across Germany and Eastern Europe in the late 1930s.  Every person in America is going to be an active “player” whether you wish to be or not.  

The Great American Witch Hunt has officially begun.  Coming soon to your front door?

This Man Needs UNC's Spin Guy NOW!

April 28,’14:   The only way this Donald Sterling MEGA-Brouhaha gets any wackier is if Sterling tells one of his toadies (you KNOW he has toadies and they all have names courtesy of Raymond Chandler) – “Get me that UNC Vice Chancellor of Spin.  Have Chili Palmer take the jet.  I don’t care what it costs. DO IT!”

Can we work Reverend Barber into this along with “Call me Dickie”?  This definitely needs those two in it somehow.   What does Ol’ Roy think about all this?  Could “V.” Stiviano (V dot ?) Donald’s black/Mexican gal pal be linked to Russell’s divorce? ....

Will "they" cut off Donald's slauson?

Typhoid Mary - or - Mary of Arc ??

April 24,’14:  Yesterday, today and tomorrow The Saga of “Mary Whistleblower” inexorably carves its niche into the Grand Mosaic known, at least here, as The Great Unpleasantness.  Opinions of Ms Willingham’s worth as a human being depend totally upon where on the partisan spectrum one resides.  No one from the Tru-est Tru Blue Ostrich to the most pointy-toothed, rafter-hatin’ ABCer thinks we have heard the last of.....

Typhoid Mary – or – Mary of Arc.  .....“Terrorist or Freedom Fighter” ???

So, why DID we hate New Bern?

April 21,’14:  Coincidentally, I’ve attended two reunions in the past month.  One involved my high school’s basketball program.  The other involved my college’s football program.  

I enjoyed getting together with old friends in both cases, doing what everyone does at such affairs – (1) exhuming and exaggerating dusty memories and (2) talking about those who were not there.  #2 is why it is a good idea to attend such things.

In both cases, “those people” and “those days” are part of who I am, and always will be.  So are lots of other people and days.

AP: UNC BOG Expose - Season Finale.... maybe

April 15,’14:  In what might be the exciting Season Finale of our widely-acclaimed peek into the mysterious world of the UNC Board of Governors, we muse rhetorically on how the success (or lack) of this august body is gauged.   

Our previous segments on “The BOG” have generated curiosity, acclaim and criticism.  That trifecta means we have provided a darn accurate appraisal.  We have ruffled a few feathers thru either defending the BOG or criticizing it.  Both have been warranted, we move on.....

But Dr Deborah.... it was "Just Lunch"!

April 13,’14:  About six weeks or so ago, WCHL 97.9FM in Chapel Hill aired a lengthy interview with Dr Deborah Stroman – Chair of The UNC Black Faculty & Staff Caucus.  The subject was The Great Unpleasantness.   Dr Stroman was insistent that the scandal was “racist” and being driven by deep-seated racial discrimination towards AfAm students-athletes and faculty.   I listened to her comments with sincere interest.

I agreed with certain aspects of her argument.  I questioned her conclusions on other aspects.  I was very curious to know more.  I invited Dr Deborah Stroman via email to “just have lunch” (my treat) to further discuss.  Alas.  “Just lunch” never happened. ..... sigh, sob, sniff.
